Are you trying to run the virus scanner on the server on in the client?

In either case (server or client) you would have to examine the virus-scanning package you have in mind and see what facilities it provides for automation like that. It's possible that the shrink-wrapped version you buy for under $100 would have no such facilities, but that embeddable versions might be available from the company for a higher price. Again, you would have to ask the company about that.

Obviously it's possible because I have seen it done, and no doubt so have you.

I am planning to have it on serve. So if I have a file on my server and user is trying to download it - it would be scanned for viruses by the server before offering user to download it. Similar to virus scan offered by Yahoo mail and similar. maybe, I can write to those AV companies directly.

Is this a Java question?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
